Drawful 2 is one of those games where the possibilities are endless, and the experience is only limited by your imagination. The idea of the game is that each player is given something to draw, then each image is presented in turn. After this, each player must make a guess at what the drawing is and attempt to fool other players into thinking their title is the correct title. Points are given to those who fool others with their title, and the drawer if people guess the correct answer. It’s a lot easier to understand when you get hands on with the game. The minimum number of players this can be played with is 3, but even then there is still fun to be had and competitiveness to be shared.
One good thing to know right off the bat is that there is a way to stop the game censoring you if one of your titles contains a naughty word, this allows you and your crude friends to be as imaginative as possible. The possibilities are endless as you are given so many different scenarios to draw. Another great thing about this game is that anyone can play, the only controller is your phone and the screen connected to the PS4 that Drawful is on. All you need to do is to go on the Jackbox website on your phone’s browser and that’s it! Most people have a smart phone these days so there is no technological limit to stop you from play as you don’t have enough controllers.
However, it should be noted that the maximum number of players is 8 but there is an audience feature which allows people to watch the game and vote on the best title. This cap isn’t negative as it would take too long to sift through everyone’s answers and the humour may die out. The audience feature is ideal for streamers and Twitch personalities as it allows them to get their fan base involved, this feature is also common in more [Jack in the Box games] like Quiplash.
Part of the fun of Drawful 2 is that there is no rubbing out, no way to go back on your mistakes. This makes it all the more fun as if you make a mistake you’ll have to work around it, and this can make for some interesting results. There is basically no limit to the amount of fun that can be had with this game, it’s just a case of how many friends you have in the same room at the same time. Obviously if you live away from your friends then you’d be best to stick with something like Cards Against Humanity which can be played online.
Overall I’m going to give Drawful 2 8 out of 10, there are endless possibilities and lots of fun to be had with all of your friends. You can even make your own levels so there really is no limit. With a maximum of 8 friends you can have a lot of enjoyment if you’ve got everyone round for dinner.
The only drawback (Hahaha, draw) is that you can only play this with friends, so if for some reason you and your pals don’t meet up often then this isn’t the game for you. But as I said this is the sole negative point for an otherwise amazingly amusing game.
